SISTER BLAMES ANNA NICOLE FOR DANIEL'S DEATH IN NEW BOOK

Just days after Anna Nicole Smith laid her only son, Daniel, 20, to rest after his sudden death Sept. 10 in Nassau, Bahamas, her half-sister has put her anger toward Anna on paper, blaming her for his death in her new tell-all book.

Donna Hogan’s “Train Wreck: Anna Nicole Smith Unauthorized” is set for release next month from Phoenix Books, but Hogan’s scathing commentary has already generated quite a buzz.

Hogan says Smith neglected her son and while she was aware he was taking drugs, did nothing in the way of stopping it. It has been stated by a private medical examiner that Daniel died as a result of an accidental combination of methadone and antidepressants.

“[Anna] waits forever to bury him and two days after he dies, she's selling pictures of him to the tabloids and I'm thinking, 'What a freaking waste of a human being, my sister is,” Hogan writes.

Howard K. Stern, Smith’s long-time lawyer and new husband, counters Hogan’s claims in an interview with the Daily News. “Donna is yet another person trying to take advantage and make money off of Anna Nicole when she is at the lowest point in her life. I can assure you all of these matters will be addressed at the appropriate time,” Stern said.
